Pokhran Fort - Review
Pokhran fort lies in the village of Pokhran not far from Jaisalmer. If you are looking for a day’s outing from the city, this would be your best bet. Interestingly, the fort still belongs to the royal family but its gates have been opened for tourists to see and experience.
Being under the care of the royal family, the place is one of the best preserved of all the forts you will see. There are a large number of artifacts and paintings on display. The rich history and architecture of the Pokhran fort makes it a paradise for the lovers of History and culture.
You will also be able to see many rare birds and animals in its secluded vicinity. They conduct traditional performances, dances and dinners in the evening in the area as well.

Pokhran Fort, Jaisalmer Reviews
Pokaran's fort is an amazing place. Everyone should visit it once. It's a monument of our prosperous culture. But one thing to notice that we don't care about our nation's history , the great past. Local people who visit the fort, make the place too dirty. They throw garbage everywhere and spit tobacco on the walls. This is so ridiculous. We should understand and respect ,care about our national wealth. Please please please care for it.
You can't see it in its totality ...... This place is at Pokhran near Pokhran Hospital and police station. You will find a little market around the Fort. This place is quite interesting with old Heritage that has to it. And if you pay in their about 4000 will find a hotel which is inside the Fort that will deliver you a great comfort open Pool and good beautiful garden. And for normal visit in 2018 in the cost is 20 rupees per persons and you can spend more about 1 hour to discover all the places except the hotel they offer.
This is one of the beautiful forts that I have visited. The fort is well maintained and is allowed to tourists with minimal ticket prices.
This is the fantastic hotel. It's mile was awesome. service is perfect.
Got a chance to visit this place 2 years back at the time of visiting rajasthan famous temple Baba Ramdev situated at Runicha. Pokaran fort is approximately 12 km away from the temple. Half of the fort is converted in Heritage Hotel with 19 rooms with swimming pool and multi cuisine restaurant and other half is in the form of museum. It's good to visit here as a historical point of view. It is also known as Balagarh and was built in 14 century by Marwar Thakur Rao Maldeo. Pokaran museum is situated inside the fort premises, which displays Armory, pottery, costumes, miniature paintings etc. An entry fee is also collected from visitors for visiting this fort.
